Tips for decorating a wedding marquees

Now that you have hired and chosen your marquee for your wedding party, the next step would be to plan and decorate them to suit your theme. A marquee is an open space where you can be creative with decoration as much as you want. To help you plan and decorate your marquee we’ve come up with some following tips that would be useful for your wedding after party.


For planning decoration, it’s ideal to draw up the size and shape of your marquee on a piece of paper. This will give you an idea of the space available and where the furniture should can be placed. Finding out the number of people who are attending can also help with how many chairs you will need.


The budget should include everything you will need from chairs, flowers and decorations. You can also add the extra bits that you might need later.

Wall decoration

If you have chosen a tent marquee, then it already comes with a wall drape. For some of you who have opted for a marquee without a wall tent, you can use your fabric instead. We recommend buying some hanging lights and decorations for the side roof or the wall.

Pole decorate

The marquee pole or stand can be decorated with artificial leaves or flowers around them. Other ideas include adding lights or ribbons and bows to represent the wedding theme.


If your marquee is held outdoor, then you won’t need to buy an expensive flooring as you can always just use what’s already there. Including the grass or a concrete floor. However, if you want to go above and beyond, you can use a luxury carpet or hardwood flooring for indoor options.


There are plenty of themes that you can apply to your decoration. Just do some research online and select a theme that best suit you and your partner. You can also use a colour theme for an easier and simpler option.
